This year’s charity fashion show took place in a packed Quod, following the same winning formula as in previous years, but there were a few firsts:
- For the first time, one of our sixth formers – Hamish McAllister (SH UVI) – had some of his own original pieces on the catwalk, and even modelled one of them himself.
- An Old Salopian, George Wade-Smith (I 2004-2009), also had some of his own-label clothes on show.
- One of our models, Matthew Barnett (SH UVI), has considerable professional experience walking catwalks – see his account in his ‘Week in the Life’ article for more information.
The local boutiques participating in this year’s show were Templeton Jones, Sweet Verona, KoKo and Stubbs, and hair and makeup were done by Essensuals.
The event was preceded by a champagne reception for parents and guests, and was followed by the Students’ Open Mic Night compered by Ali Webb.
The evening raised £1,000 in total, which will be split equally between the NSPCC and the Blue Chairs Charity.
